Abstract

Although iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) as a rare cause of cerebral sinus thrombosis was supported by several studies, the relationship between IDA and venous thromboembolisms (VTEs) remains unclear. In this study, we evaluated the association between IDA and subsequent VTEs based on a population-based coverage database. We retrieved data for this case-control study from the Taiwan Longitudinal Health Insurance Database 2000. In total, 2522 cases with VTE and 12=610 randomly selected controls were included. A conditional logistic regression was used to examine the association of VTEs with previously diagnosed IDA. The χ 2 test indicated that there was a significant difference in the prevalence of prior IDA between subjects with a VTE and the controls (3.41 vs. 2.06%, respectively, P=
